About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Enjoy life, traveling as much as I can, writte a lot, read a lot, live a lot

ABOUT ME

I consider myself as a kind person. I'm around 25 years old (ok, ok, I'm 35, shit!) and I work as a human rights reporter in a newspaper in Mexico City, my hometown. I live so happy with my wife, who is journalist too :-)

PHILOSOPHY

I try to enjoy my life, my wife, my friends and my space as much as posible, and I like to be with active, happy and enterprising people.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'd like to help other people to know my country, as other persons did when I traveled somewhere. I love to know new people and new cultures

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Honestly, I never expected to have so many couch requests, but all my experiencies have been really good! I've had surfers from Germany, Austria, England, Belgium, Australia, France, Italy, Paraguay and of course Mexico. Hope to have more soon.

Interests

I love riding my bike, swimming, reading all kind of literature, poetry and journalistic works, and playing pool.
I also love movies, nature, listening to music and learning new things, new languages, for example. I'm not a very expert cook, but I like to experiment every now and then. I like a lot to play chess and to go to the stadium, to see the matches of my university soccer team. And why should I deny it? I adore sleeping, jeje. And traveling, of course.

Music, Movies & Books

There are a lot of movies, books and music I like! But some of my favorites are:
Writters: Eduardo Galeano, Ryzsard Kapuscinsky, Juan Rulfo, Orhan Pamuk, Coetzee, José Saramago, Paul Auster, Conan Doyle, Fernando Pessoa, Truman Capote, Haruki Murakami, Stanislaw Lem.
Music: Goran Bregovic, James, Joaquín Sabina, Silvio Rodríguez, Oasis, Buena Vista Social Club, Radiohead, The Clash, Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Cab Calloway.
Movies or directors: Kim Ki Duk, Tarantino, Francois Ozon, Fatih Akin, Kubrick, Lars von Trier. Full metal jacket, A clockwork orange, Cinq fois deux, The shinning, Head on. There are a lot!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

The first thing that comes to my mind is how amazing was to see the starry night from the top of the Popocatepetl volcano, near Mexico City. It was quite simple, but so beautiful at the same time, even though it was f**ing freezing!
